ArdupilotMega Shield/Oilpan available for preorder

For those who don't want to be waiting for it, here's your your best option: Order it and be one of the firsts to receive it (As always FIFO service).

Go for it here:

It will be released during the next week (Sorry for the long delay!).

BTW the pictures is just for display purposes, the final color you will receive is blue and has the latest improvements. ;-)

Just ordered the new IMU to go with the ArduMega from last month - thank you Jordi, Chris, and team! I'm looking forward to experimenting with the new hardware!

Thanks for the info about the connectors. Great news about the fixed-wing software first releases - but we will be patient anyway. No sense in releasing early - except to the beta testers.
Will it be maybe a better idea to mount as a shield instead of an oilpan if there is any possibility of wanting the magnetometer/airpseed ind. or other possible sensors in the future - (clearance with oilpan concerns)?

Thanks again, Dave

Jordi/Chris I am new to this site and blogs. I have orderd my AdruMega Pilot from Sparkfun. I also placed a pre order for the 'OilPan' IMU. I paied $149.95 for mine and I only got the IMU now I see you have a kit containing the connectors for 149.95 and the IMU alone is $139.00. What will I get for my $150 on order #3778 just the IMU or will I receive the kit?
Thanks in advance Wallace

Hi folksssssssss!
I will order the things for this project and I want to know what GPS is better... MediaTek or ublox5??
About the Ardupilot Mega... is it available at DIYDRONES Store? I couldnt find it... just to order all from diy store ;)

Mauro, I'm not sure about the GPS but you can't buy the Ardupilot mega from the DIYDrones store. You have to buy it from sparkfun. They do this to get around the restrictions on selling autopilots.

Hi Mark!
Thanks for your reply! What do you mean with "They do this to get around the restrictions on selling autopilots" Who wants to control that? and why? DIY store is not allowed to sell it?

The US has export regulations. I'm not a lawyer but I think it just makes buying/selling ardupilot much easier if one party isn't selling everything.

It would save a lot of courier costs if we can order everthing for the ArduCopter from a single source. Please supply us with a list of parts to buy (including suppliers) for the ArduCopter project. Which GPS?, Sonar sensor?, Magnetometer? What motors are mostly recommended? I would like to start ordering so that by the time the firmware are released I have all (or at least most) or the parts.
Thanx for this great project,
